While it may look extremely good, knowing how to apply false eyelashes properly is essential. Here is a simple step by step tutorial on how to apply fake lashes easily.
Tips For Applying Fake Lashes
Choose The Fake Eyelashes
There are many types of false eyelashes available in the market. There are strip eyelashes, individual eyelashes and separate lashes. While the individual false eyelashes are glued in between the original eyelashes, the strip eyelashes are glued to the entire length of the lash line.
Separate flares are applied to the lashes to make them look fuller and voluminous. False eyelashes are also available in a range of colors and length. Some of them are adorned with feather, rhinestones and other accessories. So if you want a dramatic look then you can even opt for long orange lashes with feathers on them.
Trim The Eyelashes
Once you have chosen the false eyelashes you want, you will need to check the length of the fake lashes to see whether it matches your natural lashes or not. If the fake eyelashes are slightly longer then trim the length with a pair of scissors to make sure that it matches your natural lash length.
While trimming it is important to keep in mind that the lashes should be slightly longer towards the outer corner of the eyes. This will make the lashes look much more natural.
Apply Glue To The Lashes
Squeeze some eyelash glue on the back of your hand and run the base of the false eyelash along it. Do not apply too much glue on the false eyelashes as it can become messy and application can be a pain. You can leave glue on for a few seconds so that it becomes slightly dry before applying it on the lids.
Apply The Lashes
Look straight in a mirror and using tweezers pick up the false eyelashes. Press the false eyelashes as close to the lash line as possible. Now hold the lashes from one end to the other using your fingers for around fifteen to twenty seconds so that the glue dries off and the lashes are stuck to the lash line properly.
Before applying the lashes, it is important to clean your eyelids and remove any dirt or makeup residue. This is because any dirt or oil on the lids will make the application even harder.
Apply Mascara And Eyeliner
Use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes so that the false ones blend with the natural ones properly and the use mascara over the lashes. To fill in the gaps between the natural and false eyelashes use eyeliner on the lash line.
To remove false eyelashes you can either use special removers or just use a washcloth dipped in warm water to remove the lashes. Application of false eyelashes is tricky but with practice you will soon learn to apply it like an expert.
